tumblr thursday?

i have not been very good about posting my tumblr inspiration on tuesdays have i? haha! i guess it really doesn't really matter what day i post it, right? :) here are some fun, inspiring ideas i've found in the past week.

i love this thought!



these scissors make me happy, but i would want to use them all the time instead of having them in a frame. :)


i believe i'd wear a medium in this shirt. (cough, hint, cough)


i think these thank you notes are DARLING! it makes me want to make a bunch of them to send out to friends.


i love this so much, even though we don't really have legos at our house. however, we do have tons of polly pockets and tinker toys, so the concept could be applied. this also gives me two different ideas of using a crate like this for something else. i see a thrifting trip in my future soon...


of course, i love this because of the dogs, but i also love the sentiment. i want to send this out to all the beautiful people in my life. you know, sometimes you have a day when you just feel unbeautiful. this drawing makes me think that when we say things like this to ourself, this is the response that God gives us. i hope that i can take the time to hear Him say that to me when i'm having a day that i feel unbeautiful.

"you're the most beautiful creature i've ever met".

wow! how adored we are. :)


i adore anything elsie makes. her style is so cute and fun to me. i love this little leaf garland for fall, made out of felt and embroidery floss. how adorable!


i love this mini book class she's getting ready to teach. i keep thinking about all the random bits i have laying around and how fun it would be to make a bunch of little art journals like this to have on hand. a great project!


on my project list has been "make jb a teepee" for a long time. there are several tutorials for them. i think it will be the perfect finishing touch for her playroom. i just need to find the right fabric. :)

let them ever sing for joy...


"But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you." Psalm 5:11

this sweet face radiates joy to me. i just had to share and spread the JOY! :)

have a happy and blessed day, friends!

tumblr tuesday...on wednesday

this week is passing me by! i feel so busy lately, but i'm not complaining. i absolutely LOVE my life right now and all the things that are filling it up. :) i had such a great day today, morning coffee with my soul sister, a mini photo shoot and then an impromptu lunch with my sweet friends from my old town. it was so nice to see everyone and chat!

here's some inspiration for tumblr tuesday...a day late. :)


i can't begin to tell you HOW MUCH i LOVE this photo. i am in love with that floor tile. it has been my favorite pattern for a long time. i love how tiny they are. then, the color on the walls. gorgeous! plus, i love the treatment. it seems brushed on with a texture to it or something. using the leftover stickers to write on the back of the door? hello!! i love this and the good Lord above knows i have a million leftover stickers. i even love the yellow that is in the hallway outside of this bathroom. this photo just makes me happy. :)



how cute is this? recycled bread tags painted to look like monsters. wouldn't this be adorable to tie up some cellophane bags of candy to give away for halloween? time for me to start hoarding bread tags i guess. genius! of course, i'd have to have my sister in law paint them because she's got mad skills.

don't hate.

i get especially cranky when people hate on my loved ones. :)



this makes me think of my beautiful friend, michelle, who can create just about anything. she's so talented. those ruffled leggings are so adorable!

michelle, get to work on this! :)





i love this. sometimes life can throw us a curve ball, for sure. one thing i've learned in my 33 years is that there is ALWAYS something to be thankful about. i've had days where i've said, "i'm thankful that i have air to breathe. i'm thankful that there are birds chirping in the sky." it may feel like everything is falling apart, but there is always something good. i try to focus on the positive. sometimes it's hard. REALLY hard, but today (and every day) really is a GOOD day! given to us by our awesome Creator. that makes me smile. :)



yes, you are. :) enough said.
